In the closing years of the 19th century Don Melchor de Concha y Toro discovered that his most treasured wines had been pilfered from the ?casillero? (cellar) beneath his family home. To discourage further theft, the enterprising Don spread a rumor that his deepest, darkest cellars were haunted by the devil. Today, the original Concha y Toro family estate, complete with its Devil?s Cellar, is Chile?s leading tourist destination!
Calina Chardonnay was born in 2001 and in every year since the wine has achieved Best Buy status. The 2007 is full of apple, pineapple and banana aromas and flavors. Along the way hazelnuts, pear and honey enter the mix. Light but not forced, with proper acidity and balance.
